UKIP will be contesting seats at local, regional and national level in Tatton and Knutsford at the next elections in 2015, according to the political party’s deputy leader.

Paul Nuttall, an MEP for the north west, will be speaking at a meeting of the recently-created Knutsford branch of UKIP at Leicester Warren Hall on Thursday, December 5.

He told the Guardian his party will be going all out for victory in elections in the town and the rest of the county at regional, national and European level.

“One hundred per cent we will be going all guns blazing in Knutsford,” he said.

“Not only for the General Election but for the town council elections and Cheshire East Council – it will be a full slate.

“There are Euro elections in 2014 and we want to win three seats in the north west.”

He said the Knutsford branch was currently selecting its candidate to challenge George Osborne in 2015 at the General Election, and believed Conservative voters in the town were not getting what they voted for.

“The branch is going through that process now and that person will be in place in January,” he said.

With HS2 set to be the a hot topic for politicians in the run up to the election, Mr Nuttall confirmed his party’s stance on the project.

“UKIP is the first political party to come out against HS2 and we are the anti-HS2 party,” he said.

“The money would be better spent updating the current transport infrastructure – HS2 is all about London.”

Despite doing well in the European elections the party has fallen away at local and regional elections in the north west.

But after creating a Cheshire East ‘super’ branch, it now has created groups in Macclesfield, Congleton, Crewe and now Knutsford.

“We’ve got branches all around the county and our membership in Cheshire has doubled in the past two years,” added Mr Nuttall.

“We will give the people of Knutsford the opportunity to vote for UKIP in every seat and we want representation at every single level of government.

“We will hold the Conservative party to account in Cheshire East, we believe in local democracy and direct democracy and if people put in a petition we say it should trigger a referendum.

“If you elect a UKIP councillor he or she is there to serve the community, not the party they are representing.”

Paul Nuttall will be speaking at Leicester Warren Hall on Thursday, December 5 at 7pm.
